I thought this might be a good idea so that we don't crowd the catalog and that threads of a higher quality can remain more accessible for longer. I'll start... and I apologize because I know how vague this is going to be. A couple months back (and I think it was on this board) I saw a recommendation for a French film that was made in the last five years. It's most obvious characteristic was the intense, unusual camerawork; holding on strange angles and shaking violently at times. I saw a scene and all I remember is that it took place in the woods, with two characters maybe? That's all I have...

Where the freak are you supposed to get really rare movies? I want to find Percevel le Gallois (1978) but I don't want to become famous first so they'll let me in the criterion closet. Where do you get your silly art movies if you can't get them from 1337, rarbg, kickass, the lot? And certainly not from physical media. Have you got it?

Who's Who of Victorian Cinema - A biographical guide to the earliest years of moving pictures, 1871-1901 - http://www.victorian-cinema.net/

<The confusion that existed at the birth of film to a very large extent still exists. Moving pictures did not arrive as a neat package on a specific date; those who were involved knew nothing of the phenomenon of cinema that was to come. They were scientists who saw film as an aid to their work, businessmen who hoped to exploit a new invention for the short period they expected the public to be attracted to it, or performers only doing what they would normally do on a stage. Moving pictures were just another invention in an age of inventions, or just another variety turn. What none could have foreseen was the grip that film would have on audiences, how the medium would develop and extend itself, and how the moving image would become dominant as a means of communication and entertainment in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Sample biography

Shibata Tsunekichi was a photographer employed by the Mitsukoshi department store in Japan. He appears as a filmmaker in April 1898, filming five scenes in Tokyo for the Lumière brothers, the first films in Japan by a native filmmaker. In 1899 he filmed three geisha dances, at the behest of Komada Koyo, benshi and proto-film producer. The dancers had trouble staying within the sight-lines laid down for them, but geisha films went on to become a very popular native product in the earliest years of Japanese filmmaking. The geisha films were first shown 20 June 1899. In September of the same year Shibata shot Inazuma goto Hobaku no Ba (The Lightning Robber is Arrested), with Yokoyama Umpei playing the detective and Sakamato Keijiro the burglar. The following day Shibata shot Shosei no Sumie (The Schoolboy's Ink Painting) with Yokoyama as a man painted with ink by two boys while he is asleep on a bench. In November 1899 he shot the most prestigious Japanese film so far, Momiji-gari (Maple Leaf Hunters), intended as an historic record of the Kabuki theatre actors Danjuro IX and Kikugoro V. Ninin dojoji (Two People at Dojo Temple) was made in December. Shibata, by now JapanPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

few issues:

https://cineuropa.org/en/newsdetail/373626/

>Emerging Slovakian filmmaker György Kristóf is readying yet another ambitious project after his feature debut "Out", "Bunker"

>slovakian

hungarian

>Out, Bunker

so they are angloamerican films and they have the same names on whichever language-edition you use too, hence confirmed

>glocal

Another thing that struck me is the eu advertisment on the right.

>gocritic

as if their "critique" level wasn't horrendous as it is

>muh "best" this, "best" that

either they are their own authority or they accept bigger authority, they can't coexist if both do very much the same thing, there's wikipedia, or should be, for poll aggregation

>cineuropa

>europa

>default is english

it should be, and should have been since 2002, fr/es/it/de

they also seem to suck dick of the industry very hard

every two or three days they put out 8 articles, which is too much for me, if they would make /news/ general puting all in one biweekly would be better, it's all bulshit too full of redundant information (what's the point? https://cineuropa.org/en/newsdetail/373623) and it's not like there's anybody checkin fucking film site every two days, or is there?

directors have filmography listed, that's nice, but there's no complete list of articles about the director, only about the films

reviews with no tags, unclickable authors of the reviews and way too short reviews with nothing-saying big words, someone calls this Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

you forgot to mention, when you mentioned trailers, their https://invidio.us/channel/UCwu67nMWl3Xq-_mw6Xr6vbQ

shame on them for not including exact link under the video tho

Compared to cineuropa:

clickable authours, although there's nothing about their background etc too

tagged, although it's not exactly what I would want: "drama" tag, what's the point of something that vague?, but directors are tagged so you can search both directors and their films and for films mentioned in the review

they make analysis, can't comment on them as I haven't read any https://www.cinemaldito.com/tras-el-mito-apuntes-sobre-lo-que-esconde-silver-lake/

they also do tasteofcinema-like lists https://www.cinemaldito.com/las-25-peliculas-noir-malditas/

3 pics instead of one in the review and the reviews justify themselves more, you can compare it yourself, it's not like it's hard to write something better than the cineuropa clowns https://www.cinemaldito.com/liberte-albert-serra/ if you don't speak spanish and don't want to use javascript, here's a tool you can use http://aplica.prompsit.com/en/, although it's better if you learn spanish haha

some reviews are more than 5 paragraphs https://www.cinemaldito.com/lo-que-esconde-silver-lake-david-robert-mitchell/

Yes, but it's what makes him stand out too, i don't know of anyone else reviewing movies with imageboard humor, like sseth is for video games for example, i wouldn't go to him for any deep analysis though.

The mystery of the Voynich Manuscript has been solved. The language is loosely Turkic. A good amount of the book has now been translated.

Well that makes me kinda sad in a way, i liked the idea of a mysterious manuscript hundreds of years old that nobody knows anything about.

So why was it made? is it just the medieval equivalent of sonichu?

They have not explained the purpose behind the book. Check out their second video for some updates.

Everything sounds pretty good, they've had positive meetings with linguistic experts and were featured on Turkish television.

They are planning to publish a few books. Their paper on the discovery was rejected from a scholarly journal for undisclosed reasons.

They said the book was written by a traveler, it includes information about health and medicine (in the parts translated), and there's a code about military information when certain letters are read top to bottom. The code makes it even more interesting.

Damn it's still way too hard to get a post through

>Dark Was the Night [2014]

The main plot revolves around an undiscovered apex predator being flushed out of it's natural habitat by a logging company and finding new hunting grounds in a small town. If the movie just focused on this it could have been a cool monster flick or innawoods type of movie, but it doesn't. The film has another plot about a small town sheriff dealing with the death of his son. He hates himself for it but he gets over it and reunites with his wife. That's it, that's his plot. You've seen this plot in countless other movies and worst yet it has nothing to do with the movie's main plot about a monster terrorizing this small town, it's just there to lengthen the movie's running time.

The movie goes for a less is more approach with the monster's screen time, so at most you'll see a leg here, arm there. And even with those small glimpses you can tell the monster is CGI, bad CGI at that. And on top of that the cinematography just makes it painfully obvious when the monster is going to pop up. 'Gee, why is the main character in focus but in a corner next to a big open window?' kind of obvious.  

Another major problem with the film is the fact that every character is just boring. We have: Sad family man. Angry farmer. Farmer's daughter [don't touch her!]. Native american man. The preacher. Etc, etc. The very second you can identify the stereotype you've learn all there is to know about the the character on screen.

Everything about this movie has been done before, it's offers nothing new nor does even try to be creative. I read one review claiming this movie flew under the radar and he's right: It went under the radar because it sucks.

>The Lighthouse

All around pretty damn good, watching it felt like what a Swans album would look like, incredible performances by Pattison and Dafoe too.

>The Host

Some times i didn't know whether to laugh or to cry in a good way, expected a gory horror show but it ended up being much more than that, didn't even mind the cheesy ending.

Watched Parasite and The Lighthouse with my family since my brother wanted to see them. They're among the few vaguely mainstream films I wanted to see from last year. Still might watch Deerskin and Ad Astra.

Parasite played better with our group than The Lighthouse, and personally I enjoyed it more than Memories of Murder (the only other film I've seen from Bong Joon Ho). The Oscar announcement makes Parasite the first Best Picture nominee I've seen since Tree of Life. I'm rooting for it to win because I loathe contemporary Hollywood directors. The yearly moaning about Oscar "diversity" is completely undermined by the fact they ignore world cinema almost completely.

I haven't read many reactions to Parasite. I was wondering if there are subtle aspects of the film that only Koreans fully understand? For example, is there deeper significance to the rich family mocking DPRK propaganda, or to the wife's General Yi reference?

The Lighthouse was a mysterious monochromatic fever dream, a slow burn of stunning imagery and folk terror. Plenty of quotable sea slang too. But I think the salty dialogue is better than the narrative itself -- with all the buildup I was expecting more of a payoff. Looking back, the film mayy be better than I initially felt, and it's interesting to explore the theme of man vs. god.

It's true the acting was very good, although my anti-Oscar bias makes me wary of films that are driven by actors. I think /tv/ anons like this film because they watch all the other crap that's released, so The Lighthouse obviously stands out.

>more of a payoff.

I have to agree, but i think that's to intensify the "fever dream" aspect, feels like you're going crazy along with the characters something i love in media in general

What exactly counts as video art? For example, would something like this count?

Maybe someone would call that video art but I'd say it's more performance art (if it's supposed to be art in the first place).
